What do you think of Open Pros with DA hubs? What wheelsets are better. If I wanted to sell a mint set, what do you think they would be worth?

Open Pro's are a great all-around wheelset. I have a set on Ultegra hubs, and they have been bulletproof. Mine probably have 5000+ miles on them and have performed great.

Why would you want to sell them? You may only get $200 for a used set, so you may be better off keeping them as backups.

You can buy a brand new set from Excel or CC for under $300.00. So use this to determine what a used set might sell for.

PS I built up OP's with DA hubs & I love them. Light, strong & comfortable.

Mine are built up with record hubs and butted spokes. If built up right they rival any boutique wheel weight. Great for training or racing. I doubt you would get much for them used. You may be better off keeping them for spares especially if you are racing.

I have a set with Ultegra hubs that are brand new that I have tried to sell on E-bay for $235.00. Two different times, there have been no takers. That included shipping. I hope this gives you an idea.

You can buy this same set today, brand new from Excel for $239.00. No wonder you had no takers.

and instead of just looking at your wheel set and thinking about having something flashier, just get on your bike and ride.
